Uh Oh- time to grow up


Dear John Q. Public,

Contrary to popular opinion, I have only had 3 careers in my 40 years on this clump of clay. I spent 17 years behind a camera, 8 years as what my resume’ calls a “Security Consultant” (basically peeping in windows and key holes), and now, the past year and a half, managing the Mega-Lo-Mart photo lab.

In between I have had some, shall we say, experiences to keep my free time less free. I tended bar, taught kids, I drove rich people, picked up trash on the highway… oh, wait, that wasn’t so much a job as an “assignment”.

I have continued to shoot pix as a hobby and for $$, but now, as I hit the big Four Oh, Mrs. Pop’s (who I affectionately refer to as Popina) feels I need some stability in my fault-line life.

I am now pleased to announce I have a real job. I, as of July 3, 2006 will be an employee of the state.

The state of Arizona to be exact.

And not like before when I did some temporary work for the state of California.

No orange jump suit this time. I’ll actually be getting a check instead of filter-less smokes and pruno.

I don’t know how it will be ‘workin’ fo the man’ as they say, but I will keep you posted.

Sincerely,
Your tax dollars at work,
Pop’s

Congrats on the job! :)

And glad to see you back blogging. I had your blog bookmarked on my old computer, but not on my new one. Glad to see you again!

Congratulations and best of luck! I'll be back, and I look forward to hearing how it all works out! (sorry, bad pun, but it's late and i'm too tired for anything witty...)

Congradulations on the new job, but don't let your free spirit die out.
